These stunning images (one of which features one of yours trulys favorite things!) come courtesy of Beebe, who writes:
I’m a long-time reader, first time emailer. I’m an Astoria resident with a studio in the very southern part of LIC. So I frequently look across the water to Greenpoint. Late this afternoon, I shot a rainbow sprouting over the Shit Tits. (I apologize for not knowing the name of the sewage processing plant and relying on such crude slang.) It’s yours to use as you see fit… I’m also attaching a photo of tonight’s fantastic sunset. Just in case.
Keep up the shitty (i.e. good!) work?
Thanks for the images— and the kind words.
P.S.: Oh yeah, it’s officially called The Newtown Creek Waste Treatment Facility. But I stick with Shit Tits. It rolls off the tongue more elegantly.
